DOT IX launches ‘Vinta’ sailing at Paseo del Mar
Monday, 23 July 2012 13:03




CREDIT TO THE OWNER

The Department of Tourism IX (DOT) on Saturday afternoon launched the “Vinta” sailing to give an additional attraction to Zamboanga City, Asia’s Latin City, at Paseo del Mar.
DOT IX Acting Regional Director Mary June Bugante said she is confident the launching of Vinta sailing would make Paseo and the city in general more attractive to visitors.
“It will add more attraction especially akel quien quiere visita na Zamboanga they will look forward to sailing in a vinta,” Bugante said.
She added that, “Eversince gayot vinta el icon, el symbol de Zamboanga City. Si ta mira quita vinta tan relate sila na Zamboanga cay amo se de atun icon. Nesecita readily seen in Zamboanga City el vinta kay di atun visita tan expect sila tiene vinta.”
Before the maiden ride, a program was first conducted wherein local dances including “pangalay” were performed by volunteers.
Five vintas were on standby during the said activity. Mayor Celso Lobregat and Bugante spearheaded the maiden ride.
After the maiden ride, the public immediately flocked the area to experience a free vinta ride.
The vintas together with the “bangkeros” were properly registered with the DOT, where the public may now experience a vinta ride.
Meanwhile, Lobregat said, “If you look at the responds, the people are very enthusiastic...it’s really more fun in Zamboanga. This will give the chance not only for tourist but even the resident to be able to see the vintas more often.”
He added that normally vintas can only be seen during the regatta but this will now be a program every weekend.
The public can now experience a vinta ride every Saturday and Sunday from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. for only P50 per head.

An Italian industrial designer's futuristic resort is as innovative as it is environmentally conscious. Michele Puzzolante has created realistic plans for a $125 million resort that will have a "five-star hotel" as well as pod-like floating units that can house up to six people.
The resort and units would all be powered by a generator that runs purely on energy created by the sun's rays.

Sound too environmentally ambitious to be true? Puzzolante wrote in the release that there are talks in progress to construct the resort in the Philippines. Puzzolante sent us some renderings of the resort and its units, which you could end up booking soon.
